The skincare professionals at Belissa Salon and Spa specialize in smoothing out the body?s rougher edges. Though they draw upon years of experience in aesthetics, they don?t rely solely on their own wits?professional Dermalogica products crafted from natural ingredients aid them as they resurface skin. For a service that exemplifies all the others, look no further than the Dermalogica thermal body treatment, which exfoliates with a natural blend of sea salt, dried seaweed, and fruit enzymes. Other, equally effective remedies may detoxify skin with mineral mud or wraps soaked in soothing plant extracts. Belissa Salon and Spa also offers tanning services: stylists use a bronzing mist to create natural-looking tans for their clients. Skin isn?t all the staff pays attention to. They also cut and color hair, groom nails, and relax muscles with six different massages, including hot-stone therapy and a prenatal style that incorporates heated alphabet blocks.

Makeup artist Tish Perkins's resumé sparkles with accomplishments, from working as a member of the Glam Squad for the 2011 Miss Black USA Pageant to earning Go Pretty's first annual Beauty Pro Award. Though these recent praises have gained her a lot of attention, Perkins has stayed focused on her passion: bringing out her clients' natural beauty with traditional and airbrush makeup. Whether dolling up faces for a boudoir shoot or applying jewels to an Indian bride, Perkins relies on her seven years of experience to work on any skin tone. Perkins is also a trained eyelash extensionist, using strip lashes, clusters, and semi-permanent lash extensions to define lash lines. By applying one strand at a time, she is able to build upon sparse lids until they resemble the glamorous lashes of a movie star or reach the football-size lengths that comprise a giraffe's main form of self-defense.
